Brew for the Few
The Royal Air Force Association (RAFA) will be holding a ‘Brew for the Few’ tea party fundraising event at the Town Hall, on Sunday from 10am to mark the 60th Anniversary of the RAF being awarded the Freedom of the Town.
RAFA, is a membership organisation and registered charity that provides welfare support to the RAF Family. The RAF Family includes all serving and ex-serving personnel and their dependants. To be eligible for welfare support, for both themselves and those who depend upon them, service personnel need to have served a minimum of one day in the RAF. The Association exists in the recognition that RAF personnel and their immediate families dedicate their lives to their country, and to ensure that such a sacrifice does not result in suffering, poverty or loneliness.
The RAF Association’s Brew for the Few is a fundraising initiative where money can be raised by holding a tea party. Guests simply make a donation in return for a cup of tea or slice of cake. Brew for the Few are a great way to help raise funds for the Wings Appeal and awareness of the Association.
